Customer Question

Hi i have a Bmw 325ci sport coupe 2004 reg automatic. The automatic transmission sequential light has come on. If i put the car in drive it will not move but make a noise from the transmission like rotating noise, if i put it in reverse it will reverse.

The noise you are hearing and the complete lack of forward gears is not a sensor.
